A Reclaimed and Restored First Ward Victorian Ticks Up Its Ask to $468K
Houston’s Real Estate Landscape – Swamplot
Quiet zone status applies not to the perky exterior’s bold paint combo but to the railroad tracks running behind this restored 1898 Victorian east of Houston Ave. and just south of Winter St. in the First Ward. The corner-lot property, which is also near the Heights bike trail, has been on the market for a month, during which the price has increased by $10K — to $468,000.
Shiplap, original trim, hard pine flooring, and windows are among the home’s reclaimed or restored finishes. HCAD records cite 2014 renovations. The 1,427-sq.-ft. floor plan has a central hall between a front-to-back slice of bedrooms, (located on the left in the photo above) and the opposing all-in-one living-dining area, now braced by exposed, stained support.
